I think that one reason for a speaker to rub is due to over heating of the voice coil. This happens when power is applied to the speaker that is greater than the speaker is capable of handling. A second cause could be that the suspension and or cone is damaged or degraded causing the coil to be tilted or off center. In either case nothing short of rebuilding the speaker can be done to repair the speaker. Rebuilding would involve removing the cone and voice coil and replacing with new items. If you were talented you might be able to repair the existing cone or voice coil but the results could be iffy.

SOURCE: The sound from my home

Muffled sound? Like no treble? Wires wouldn't cause it. Could be bad tweeters.

More specific details re: electronics, source(s) might help.
